WOLF VANWYMEERSH With His Early Years In Motion

10 June 2022

Belgian singer-songwriter WOLF VAN WYMEERSCH is a versatile musician who played/plays in several bands, but now he decided that it was time to write/record
his solo debut LP. It came out early May and is baptized THE EARLY YEARS.

Wolf: “It has become a retrospective record with songs that muse about childhood,
love or life or songs that were effectively written in my youth. In terms of sound, it is
a combination of acoustic, electric and electronic sounds.”

Turn Up The Volume named it album of the month of May: “The easy-listing construction
of his classy compositions transfers you to a place where reality fades away and makes room for melancholic memories. As I said before (several times) Wolf is a romantic at heart with a soul-stirring singer/songwriter gift (did I already mention, Father John Misty?) and a heartwarming voice. Magnific achievement.”

Last Friday it was launch night in his (and mine) hometown of Ghent, Belgium in
a cozy club for a cozy performance. I’ve seen Wolf playing countless times with
the bands he was in, but this was the first as a solo entertainer. Just like the album
this gig is one to cherish.

And just like on the album, Wolf and his two playmates created a warm, mellow atmosphere. But the tone and drive were much rockier than on record which
was received with euphoric screaming by the clap-along crowd.

The greater part of the set, of course, consisted of gems of the longplayer, supplemented with three beauties (Not To / Friendly Is Better / Queen Of Mire)
from his romantic 2021 EP Songs Of Light And Shade all served with grace, with
charm and with a big heart. Wolf is here to stay.
